IGF-1 is a large peptide/small protein that consists of 70 amino acids in a single chain with three intramolecular disulfide bridges. These disulfide bridges impart molecular rigidity and resistance to particular proteases.
It is a next-generation compound that promotes one of the most important growth factors in the human body. After growth hormone is produced in the pituitary gland it stimulates the liver to produce this peptide which then goes on to stimulate systematic body growth in almost every different type of cell and tissue in the body.
IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
Signaling through the insulin/IGF-1-like receptor pathway is a significant contributor to biological aging in many organisms. It was shown that mutations in the daf-2 gene double the lifespan of the roundworm, C. elegans. This implies that IGF-1 could have anti-aging properties and an impact on longevity.
Spiked levels of IGF-1 has been shown to drastically increase muscle growth as a result of heavy weight training and can enhance the rapid repair of existing muscle fibers as well as promote the regeneration of new muscle fibers.
IGF-1 is sold in vials containing 1MG of lyophilised powder which can be reconstituted by adding a convenient amount of sterile or bacteriostatic water.
* Mecasermin is a synthetic variant of this naturally occurring peptide and is used to treat growth failure.

IGF-1 LR3 can be taken up to 7 days a week at a dose of 50 – 150mcg a day. Desensitization has been shown to occur at around 40 days or roughly 4 weeks.
At time of dosing, an insulin syringe is used to draw and then inject the desired amount. In the above example, a 100 mcg dose would require only 0.10 mL, or “10 IU” as marked on an insulin syringe.
